Please click on the button above to donate to the support of those affected by the eruption of Fuego Volcano, in Guatemala on 3 June.
Please note that donations are being sent to our partner organisation Asociacion Esperanza de Vida in Alotenango, for the work they are doing with those affected. (This project is not run by Latin Link.)
Esperanza de Vida is focusing their support on people who have had their homes completely destroyed by the eruption, and have nothing left. There are 23 such families in the Alotenango area who they are helping, who are now staying with friends and relatives. They are in urgent need of basic items such as cooking equipment and bedding (mainly stoves, pans and mattresses).
Longer-term, Esperanza de Vida has a plan to build 15 homes for families who have lost their houses. They have a plot of land in mind for this building project (close enough to be near their community, but far enough away to feel safe). They need help towards the cost of purchasing this land and then building the new homes.
Please note that gifts received by the end of Friday 15 June 2018 will be sent on urgently, to help with both emergency needs and longer-term rebuilding work.
Donations received after this date will be sent on to the project later to help with the longer-term rebuilding needs.
Thank you for your support.
